  • Kevin Slaughter v. National Railroad Passenger Corp. a/k/a Amtrak


    Date Decided: Mar 4th, 2011

    Decided By: Pennsylvania Eastern Bankruptcy Court (Federal)

    Court: United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania

    Citation: 2011 WL 780754


    Background:

    Kevin Slaughter ("Slaughter") filed suit against National
    Railroad Passenger Corp. ("Amtrak") pursuant to the Federal Employers'
    Liability Act ("FELA"), 42 U.S.C. 51
    for injuries he sustained while working in an engine terminal located in
    Pennsylvania. Amtrak investigated the incident and created an Accident
    Investigation Report
    ("Report"). Amtrak provided Slaughter with a copy of the
    Report, but omitted a section entitled "Conclusions and Recommended
    Remedial/Corrective Actions" ("the Conclusions Section").

    Before the United States District Court for the Eastern
    District of Pennsylvania is Slaughter's Motion to Compel and Amtrak's Motion for Protective
    Order. Slaughter seeks to compel Amtrak to disclose a copy of the Conclusions
    Section. However, Amtrak contends that this information is privileged and
    should be excluded from discovery.
